It was time to fill one of the walls in our living room. I've been collecting picture frames, clocks and DIY picture art. I spray painted most of the picture frames the colors that would fit our style. I chose red and brown. It would be boring to stay with just two colors, so I mixed in silver along with other shades of red and brown. My Instagram canvases have a lot of shades of red in them as well, so I thought they would be a perfect fit in our gallery wall! Don't be afraid to mix things up a bit! ;) Throw different shapes and sizes in the mix as well! You'll appreciate it later, promise!
First I laid everything down on the floor to see how I wanted them to be hung. We tried to get the spacing as even as possible and mixed bigger frames with smaller ones. I really wanted to create a square or a rectangle with the frames on the wall. I took a picture of my layout and my kind husband offered to hang everything up. Things don't always go as planned. Right? Good thing we love being spontaneous.
I think we changed the order of our pictures 22135795 times and added and took away frames before we were actually happy with the final result! This wall will always be a work in progress. I can see us adding more pretty things as we go...
What items do you love to collect? Thank you for taking a peek at our living room wall! Happy day! xo. m.
